Dutch police arrest suspect in Utrecht shooting

Dutch police on Monday arrested a Turkish-born suspect over a shooting on a tram in Utrecht that left three people dead. Police had earlier launched a manhunt for Gokmen Tanis, 37, following the attack which left five others wounded. Authorities are still investigating a likely terrorist motive but Prime Minister Mark Rutte said they ’cannot exclude’ other motives, including a family dispute.

"fired at his relative over “family reasons” and later shot at others trying to help" I wonder if that's some Turkish custom we're just too white to get! Wouldn't want to be culturally insensitive!

PM Rutte "We will never give over to intolerance" is Dutch for "we surrender". While their politicians, artists and citizens are murdered. Moral cowardice from the people who are paid to protect their country.

There will be a lot of changes come next voting season. The people can no longer afford to be ignorant when faced with officials that trample their rights in to the ground and disregard their security.
